The NookieDevs are pleased to announce CyanogenMod 10.2 nightly builds for the Nook Color!

These experimental builds contain the latest changes to CyanogenMod and to hardware support for the Nook Color. As the name suggests, new builds are made and posted (roughly) every day; these builds are fully automatic, with no testing done before posting. As CyanogenMod 10.2 is still under active development, regressions and general breakage are to be expected in nightly builds!

Highlights: (mostly not news if you've been keeping up with CM10/10.1 nightlies)
  • Linux kernel 3.0.8, plus hardware support from TI OmapZoom's android-omap3-3.0 branch and board support forward-ported from BN kernel releases.
  • All of the features of CyanogenMod 10.2, based on Android 4.3.
  • Full 2D and 3D graphics acceleration using the GPU, with improved performance over previous releases.

Known issues:
  • Current releases of Netflix do not work with CM10.2 -- version 1.8.1 is the last version known to work. If you want/need a newer release of Netflix, look into the Xposed mod, which provides a workaround for Netflix -- pastordl has done a nice writeup of the process here.

Source code:

https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android/tree/cm-10.2 (manifest for the rest of the CyanogenMod source)
Build instructions (discussion of build issues belongs in the development thread)

This release is the product of much effort by many people over a considerable period: many thanks to fattire, keyodi, eyeballer, krylon360, dalingrin, verygreen, iomonster, nemith, cicadaman, deeper-blue, thedude, mad-murdock, j4mm3r, unforgiven512, scepterr, rebellos, ryands, kmobs, tonsofquestions, hashcode, arcee, hacdan, drmarble, mateor, dhiru1602 and many more. Thanks are also due to the CyanogenMod project, upon which we are building, and Texas Instruments, which provides excellent support for its embedded platforms to the open-source hacking community. (TI's exit from the consumer electronics SOC market is a loss for all of us.)

Google Apps; Other CyanogenMod Builds
Google Apps
http://goo.im/gapps

As of 2013/08/27, the latest release for CM10.2 is 20130813, but please check the linked page for updates.

Please make sure that you have the correct Google Apps flashed before reporting problems involving the Google Apps (Play Store, Google Keyboard, etc.).

Other CyanogenMod builds

This is the thread for CM10.2 nightly builds. There are other official CyanogenMod builds for Nook Color available:
  • CM10.1 stable releases -- these are the releases to use if you don't want to be on the bleeding edge.
  • Archived CM10.1 nightly builds -- these builds are based on CM10.1/Android 4.2. You may find these more stable than CM10.2 nightlies and faster than CM10.1.2.
  • Archived CM10 nightly builds -- these builds are based on CM10/Android 4.1.2. You may find the last CM10 nightly (20130421) faster than CM10.1 or 10.2, particularly during playback of HD 720p video.

Please check that your questions are in the appropriate thread. (If you're interested, there's lots of past discussion in those threads, as well as the development thread.)

Frequently Asked Questions and Troubleshooting
The soft keyboard keeps crashing!
The Play Store is acting up!

Did you flash the correct Google Apps?

How do I install this to an external SD card?

See this excellent guide by leapinlar for instructions.

What happened to the "Developer options" and "Performance" screens in Settings?

They're hidden by default now in CM10.1 and later. To show them, go into "About tablet" and tap the build number (for CM10.2 nightlies, JSS15Q) seven times.

How do I get the Honeycomb/ICS tablet UI?

You want to use the Auto-Patcher to modify your ROM for the tablet UI. (Don't forget to thank Caldair for maintaining the Tablet UI mod, and mateorod and the rest of the Auto-Patcher developers for building that tool.)

The lock screen doesn't rotate!
The screen doesn't rotate to the sides I want!

Particularly if you're upgrading from an existing install, you may find that the preferences for screen rotations are incorrectly set. Go to Settings->Display->Rotation and check that "Auto-rotate screen" and (if you want the lock screen to rotate) "Rotate lock screen" are set.

For the allowed screen orientations, selecting 0, 180 and 270 degrees will cover the rotations that you probably want. If you want details:
Android likes to think of the "natural" orientation (0 degrees rotation) as landscape with the N key on the right side of the screen. (This is a change from CM10 and earlier, when we were carrying a hack to change this.) The degrees of rotation are counted in the counterclockwise direction, so in essence, each of the rotation settings allows the following:
  • 0 degrees: landscape orientation with the N key on the right side of the screen
  • 90 degrees: portrait orientation with the N key on top ("upside down")
  • 180 degrees: landscape orientation with the N key on the left side of the screen
  • 270 degrees: portrait orientation with the N key on the bottom ("right side up")
I'm having a problem with my Nook Color running CM10.2.

That's not a question

Okay, I'm having a problem with my Nook Color running CM10.2 -- is there something I can do to troubleshoot?

Glad you asked! Please check the following:
  • Does the problem occur with a clean install of CM10.2? This means wiping /data and not restoring a Nandroid backup afterwards. Don't restore system apps and/or their data in Titanium Backup either (user apps/data are okay).
  • Are you overclocking? If so, does the problem occur when you set the maximum clock speed to 1000 MHz or below? To be clear, we are not interested at this point in bug reports of any kind that happen if you have the maximum CPU speed set above 1000 MHz. If you're experiencing system crashes or "sleep of death" (SOD), you may also wish to try capping the CPU clock speed to 800 MHz (but if this helps, please report your problem here and fill out the hardware survey).
  • Do you have any patches, custom kernels, or other tweaks applied? If you do, does the problem occur without those applied? (We're not necessarily going to ignore bug reports from patched or tweaked systems outright, but it can make our job harder, and we do need to know what changes you have applied to judge whether or not the change might be relevant to your problem.)

I'm having no luck with the suggestions above. What information should I include with my bug report?

When reporting a problem, please include the following information if at all possible:
  • Full description of the problem -- "it crashes" doesn't count. How do you trigger the problem (or does it occur by itself)? What exactly happens when the problem occurs? How often does it happen?
  • For problems with apps or specific pieces of the system software: we'll almost certainly ask for a logcat of the event, so you'll save everyone some time by including it.
  • For problems involving system freezes, crashes, or SOD: if you can connect to the tablet via adb while it's "unresponsive", please provide dmesg and logcat output from that time. If you cannot, try power-cycling it while it's still plugged into USB, and provide dmesg output from immediately after the reboot, plus the contents of /proc/last_kmsg if that file exists (let us know if it doesn't).
  • For unexpected reboots: provide the contents of /proc/last_kmsg from after the reboot.

Smile Awesome work!
Hi Steven,
Thanks for your great work and rest of the mentioned people:
fattire, keyodi, eyeballer, krylon360, dalingrin, verygreen, iomonster, nemith, cicadaman, deeper-blue, thedude, mad-murdock, j4mm3r, unforgiven512, scepterr, rebellos, ryands, kmobs, tonsofquestions, hashcode, arcee, hacdan, drmarble, mateor, dhiru1602 and many more,CyanogenMod project and Texas Instruments

I did a clean installation: wipe data, cache and Dalvik cache, flash the rom file *.zip and flash the gapps file *.zip. (maybe you should mention it in OP).
All working great and really smooth just some questions.
You mention the source of this kernel. This is the same as in 10.1 so to build the kernel separately for 10.2 we just need the encore_cm10.2_defconfig?
I see the changes are:
CONFIG_AUDIT=y (instead of # CONFIG_AUDIT is not set)
# CONFIG_NETFILTER_XT_TARGET_AUDIT is not set
CONFIG_FB_OMAP2_VSYNC_SYSFS=y
CONFIG_AUDIT_GENERIC=y

Is vsync the following?
Quote:

Full 2D and 3D graphics acceleration using the GPU, with improved performance over previous releases.

Really good work , thanks again for everything!

EDIT:
I think vsync doesn't work, I get this from my logcat:
Code:
08-27 17:28:30.781 W/SurfaceFlinger( 1282): getting VSYNC period from fb HAL: 11111111
08-27 17:28:30.781 W/SurfaceFlinger( 1282): no suitable EGLConfig found, trying without EGL_FRAMEBUFFER_TARGET_ANDROID
08-27 17:28:30.781 W/SurfaceFlinger( 1282): no suitable EGLConfig found, trying without EGL_RECORDABLE_ANDROID

Wow
33 days from release and a 3 year old tablet is running the latest android.

Dirty flashed 10.2 and 4.3 gapps and so far everything is running great. (over 100 apps to test out).

Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this possible. Video is great. The Netflix persist hack persisted through the 10.2 upgrade also.

Hi,

I have been using an SD install for all of 10.1 with no problem. I tried the 10.2 nightly and I cannot get it to boot to Android. I built the SD card the same way I did all the rest. It boots to CMW I have also installed the alternate. I load the nightly and gapps on to a freshly formatted SD card (as I did with 10.1 originally using Leapin' Lar's method). I have watched all the installs go bye. After it's all done the NC shuts down as it always has. When I restart I end up with a stock NC so it isn't booting off of the card to Android.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

V

Maybe the disk image is too small? The zip is 20mb bigger. Expand the partition and try again

I don't think so. I watched it all expand and all of the zips finish without an error message. It all fits on the boot track without a problem.

As I understand the SD card gets 4 partitions written to it. #1 is the BOOT partition. 2 & 3 are where the OS and execution space live and #4 is another FAT 32 partition for media files etc. That all works as expected. I'm left with 2GB in partition #4 (it's a 4GB card).

Thanks,

V

Just flashed and it is working great. I would say a little smoother and faster than 10.1. It does look like we lost about 20MB of free RAM though, for me anyway.

Oh shoot, I'd forgotten that we changed the way we mount /system and /data in 4.3-based ROMs, so the SD card installer needs updating for 4.3. FAQ updated (I'll update it again once that installer's updated).
